UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA HAAS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS EWMBA 201A—Economic Analysis for Business Decisions Fall 2009 Felix Várdy MIDTERM EXAM Instructions: The numbers in brackets indicate the points for each question. Total: 100 points + 10 bonus points. You only have 90 minutes to do the exam, and I do not expect everybody to be able to finish all the questions. So be strategic about which questions you choose to answer and how much time you spend on each of them! Please Write Legibly. Briefly explain your answers (that is, don’t just write “yes” or “no” and don’t just write down a numerical answer without showing how you derived it). Correctly annotate graphs and figures. 1. [25 Points] Martha has a vineyard which she can use for two purposes that year: tourism and wine production (the tourists steal the grapes so she cannot do both). If she produces wine and the weather turns out to be good, she generates a profit of \$25,000. If she produces wine and the weather is bad, she generates a profit of \$5,000. If she dedicates her vineyard to tourism and the weather is good, she generates a profit of \$15,000. If she dedicates her vineyard to tourism and the weather is bad, she generates a profit of \$10,000. The probability that the weather is good is only ¼.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
